Dry The River – Shaker Hymns lyrics

My family on the right hand side
And your family on the left
We got married in a single bed
And sang shaker hymns

When your war horse grandfather had sung
The whole damn Song of Solomon
We toasted health in front room
We whiled away the afternoon

My flower struck down in sickness
Your medicine man's got his face in a book
Small bottles and the trees in green England
Not one of them will do my love no good

In the morning I'm light
But in the evening, I'm heavy now
Try as I might I just can't keep it steady now

My love
